Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato soup.

Posted 10-02-2007 at 02:07 AM by curses (Curses! Foiled again!)

It's untried recipe time again! This is the soup that made me love eating soups again. As nice as the one I buy at the store is, it's expensive. Plus my uncle gave me a ton of red peppers, and they need to be used. So I'm going to try this recipe.

The Perils of Exercising..

..Or how I decided to take up soccer 15 years and 85 lbs later.

Man, my shins are killing me! It's been so long since I've been up and running about that I almost..can't. Every time my foot strikes the ground while chasing an errant soccer ball, a shooting pain runs right up the front of my shin. Ouchies. Nothing an Advil and an Epsom salt soak couldn't cure, though.

I'd forgotten just how much fun organized sports could be, though. For you see I love playing soccer...

Resumes.

Posted 09-21-2007 at 01:39 AM by curses (Curses! Foiled again!)

Yes, resumes. We all hate writing them. The only thing worse than updating your resume is writing a cover letter. This is why I stick with jobs I hate for years on end. Fuck resumes.

I've been given inside info about an IT position opening up in the company I am temping with. The ops manager gave me the nod and told me to bring in my resume tomorrow. I have one written, but I'm not very pleased with it. It seems I don't really know how to sell myself well in writing. I think...
